By D. D. Palmer

Dr Palmer has given all his time for 13 years to healing the

some new invention, and yet many of these new ideas are so simple and
easily understood that we wonder why our grandparents did not know of

Often cures are made by chance which seem miraculous.

principles upon which all these cures are made. Today the cause of
diseases are being located and those causes corrected just as surely as any
mechanic would find the cause of inharmony or wrong working in a piano,
wagon, watch, engine, or other machine.

A human being is a human machine and, like a machine, would run
smoothly, without any friction, if every part was in its proper place. If
every bone, every nerve, and all the blood vessels, muscles, etc. were just
right, there would be nothing wrong.

I look the human machine over and find what parts are out of place,
why the blood does not circulate freely to all parts, why the nerves cry
out with pain.

Disease is the effect or result of some part of the body being
disarranged. To put them in their proper place, would give the diseased
person ease and allow nature to rebuild without being obstructed.

We do not go to the drug store nor ransack all creation to find a
remedy. The remedy is in righting the wrong. The cause of disease is in
the sufferer, and the cause must be corrected.

If every part of the human body was in its natural place there would
be no friction, no inflammation, no fever, no weakness...Why not remove the
pressure, adjust the framework, and take the strain off those sensitive
